        Subject: recommendations for research

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for a half-dozen research projects in the digital 
humanities to study for their probing of any sort of cultural artefact 
(literary text, painting, sculpture, musical work, dance performance 
etc) for the boundary between computationally tractable data and our 
notion of human cultural expression. I am particularly interested in any 
research in the digital humanities which provokes us to reconsider what 
we think is human about specific artefacts produced by humans. I want to 
find out how, under what circumstances, with what sort of results, 
computing forces us to refigure what we are.

Many thanks.
